Roland GK-3
Purchased a few months to complete a Roland GR55, it works very well. the look is still ugly, but hey, question response times, the GK3 is super efficient.
Installation is "relatively" simple. For my part I had cut my plate strat 2mm to win that I missed to move the sensor under the strings, keeping a low action. I used shims supplied with the sensor. It is very well equipped on that side, the kit is complete and you can adjust the height of the sensor accurately (there are also screw on the sensor to adapt it to the radius of the scratch).
to fix the microphone, you can opt for direct screw in the body or paste, no significant difference (I had heard of feedback effects ...). An important point: with the GR55, one can reverse direction of the sensor, and thus have the wire side and non-acute Mi Mi serious. It's just great for those that over-thick sensor discomfort in the game at the right hand. However, a strat if you opt for the mounting direction, it will stick the sensor, because the screw located below the start of the thread falls into the empty (trapping for electronics). Fixing the case with the decision is simple, no problem.
The quality of the tracking is excellent, the response time almost perfect, but it is also linked to many factors other than the sensor alone: ​​a well tuned guitar (action, intonation), the converter parameters (space bridges with sensor, tuning the guitar ... etc), and precision of the game (it will not play on the handle of Rhodes as a guitarist ...).
I would definitely do it again this choice, competition is not large, and much more expensive (see Graph Tech)

Roland GK-3
Mounted on a gibson les paul studio, I installed it in less than thirty minutes.

Just put it directly below the bridge, removing the strings and the bridge, we set the sensor is reset and the bridge over the ropes. Finally, we regulate the height of the sensor quickly and it's good!
result my guitar is intact I can remove the GK3 if I want without the instrument to be drilled or dirtied by adhesives! and the sensor works very well.
on the other hand, some guitars may need to resort to adhesives provided with the apparatus of the type of bridge of the instrument ...

Roland GK-3
I use the 15 days since GK3.
Installation on my Epiphone Les Paul Custom with no points.
(Using the Stand spcial Les Paul. We must get out the ropes is a bit heavy but good! It quickly scotch and holes! Time used about 1 hour)
Price is not abus115 euros).
There on the sensor buttons for controlling the converter (GI20 for me). It's quite convenient.
But be careful though to adjust the spacing of the micro and string!

Only BMOL, the sensor is a bit during the game Gnant palm-mutting.

I'm really happy!

Go to your eyes closed!

GK3 + GI20 = the bomb in your studio!
